“The Devil wears Prada” is my favourite movie and I always wanted to make the La Rue-Bag that Anne Hathaway as Andie wears in one scene. Finally (years later) I found this faux leather from which I thought, it looks like the original. And I had luck that I got all the accessories like brass carabiners and rivets. My intention was to make it true to original.
I made the pattern myself just from the movie pictures and it was quite easy. The inner part is made of cotton fabric (normally used for pyjamas) and I applicated some small cases for mobile phone, lipstick and anything else.
The original bag has a tassel and I made this of faux leather, too. At last there was the adjustable belt to sew.
Someone published a free pattern for this: http://web.archive.org/web/20070302100521/www.hotpatterns.com/downloads/larue_bag.pdf

Unfortunately it is too small for me, or it was my printer’s fault. That’s why I had to create my personal pattern, but it was very easy.
